Why change?

What long phrases do you send to other people frequently? By default, many of us type out our home address, email, and phone number letter-by-letter. You can save time and avoid mistakes by using your phone’s keyboard shortcut features.


On Android, open Settings and go to System, Languages & input, Advanced, and Personal dictionary (or search for “personal dictionary”)

On iOS, open Settings and go to General, Keyboard, and Text Replacement (or search for “text replacement”)

Useful shortcut examples:

  1. “phonee” for your phone number: 123-543-1111
  2. “homee” for your address: 123 Aloha Ave N Apt 1234 Seattle, WA 98100
  3. “emaill” for your email:

Enjoy the ongoing benefits of your updated default setting! Get an email when a new one is posted.
